Former Chief Probation Officer Kipp Scott’s complaint for wrongful termination isn’t with the county; it’s with the state, a federal judge ruled last week as he dismissed Tippecanoe County as a defendant in Scott’s lawsuit.

Scott refiled his lawsuit earlier this month, naming the state of Indiana as the defendant and alleging that a panel of judges, who are state employees, discriminated against him when they terminated him on July 29. Scott’s lawsuit described this as wrongful termination.
